Golf club now home to world’s largest gingerbread house

Traditions Club in Texas is now home to the world's largest gingerbread house. Don't tell the golf course staff that the pro shop is moving there.

The community situated near Texas A&M, complete with a private Jack Nicklaus golf course, is site to a Guinness-certified world-record size holiday treat. It comes in at 39,202 cubic feet, breaking the previous record at 36,000 cubic feet built inside the Mall of America, in Bloomington, Minn. The house is 65 feet by 45 feet.

It was built using 1,800 pounds of butter, 7,200 eggs, 7,200 pounds of flour and close to 3,000 pounds of brown sugar. There are over 20,000 pieces of candy dotted around the structure, too, which is 36 million calories.

Don't worry, the gingerbread exterior covers a perfectly sturdy wood frame.

The house will be up until Dec. 14, then be deliciously demolished and possibly sent to a hog farm. The curious can visit the house for $3, with all of the proceeds benefiting the St. Joseph Hospital trauma center.

THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
